This guy didn’t do anything huge like save someone’s life. But the story’s going viral because LITTLE acts of kindness matter too . . .
A city bus driver in northern England was in the middle of his route this week when he saw a young girl standing in the road all alone, and she was visibly upset.
She looked like she was 11 or 12 years old. It turned out she’d missed the bus to her first day of school, because she was on the wrong side of the road when it went by.
And she was freaking out because she didn’t want to walk in late on her first day. Obviously you don’t want to give the other kids any reason to pick on you, especially on day one.
So the bus driver told her he’d take care of it, and make sure she got there on time. But he knew she wouldn’t make it by bus. So he called a TAXI instead, and HE paid for it.
The whole thing took about 10 minutes. He apologized to all his passengers who had to wait. But a mom who was on the bus with her kids says it was well worth the wait, and he did the right thing.
